Although born in Canada, Dineen spent much of his youth in the United States, while his father Bill Dineen played and coached professionally. He returned to Canada to play major junior hockey for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. He was drafted by the New York Islanders with the 42nd pick in the 1981 draft. His brothers Kevin and Peter were also NHL players.
Dineen, a tough-checking defenceman, made his NHL debut in the 1982–83 season when he played 2 games for the New York Islanders. He played a total of 528 games in his career, for the Islanders, the Minnesota North Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators, where he was a team captain during the 1993–94 season. Dineen received a Stanley Cup ring with Pittsburgh in 1991, but did not play enough games to have his name engraved on the Stanley Cup.
In 1994–95, Dineen returned to the Islanders as a free agent. He would play nine games for the Islanders and play the next six seasons in the International Hockey League, becoming the player-coach with the Utah Grizzlies in 1999–2000. Dineen finished his career with 16 goals, 90 assists and 106 points. The following season, Dineen became a full-time coach, as a head coach in the ECHL and assistant coach in the AHL.
